Calculate Future Value of Money and Investment Using MATLAB


The future-value-of-money formula relates how much a current investment will be worth in the future, assuming a constant interest rate.



FV is the future value

PV is the present value or investment

I  is the interest rate expressed as a fractional amount per compounding period—i.e., 5% is expressed as .05 n is the number of compounding periods.

(a) Create a MATLAB® function called future_ value with three inputs: the investment (present value), the interest rate expressed as a fraction, and the number of compounding periods.

(b) Use your function to determine the value of a $1000 investment in 10 years, assuming the interest rate is 0.5% per month, and the interest is compounded monthly. 


This question belongs to MATLAB software and discusses about application of MATLAB in finance to create a MATLAB file which calculates future value of money.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
